Garrett Wilson criticizes Jets for unacceptable loss to Patriots
New York Jets receiver Garrett Wilson has slammed his side for their woeful offensive display against the New England Patriots, pointing fingers at issues behind the scenes.
The Jets managed just 103 total yards and six first downs in the 10-3 defeat, with a horrendous second half showing resulting in just two positive yards.
Criticism has been directed towards quarterback Zach Wilson, who went 9 for 22 with passing attempts, though he insisted post-match that he did not feel he let down the defense.
The Jets' receiver had a different outlook, however, making it clear that there are problems that need to be addressed in order for the team to improve.
"We know we're better than that. That's why it hurts," he told reporters after the game.
"It starts in practice. It's got to be better, the things we see and don't call out. It has to start getting called out. This is unacceptable.
"No one wants to feel like this, but that's not enough. Hopefully, this is a wake-up for some people in the facility, people in the facility to get on their details.
"It starts during the week in practice, coaching, all of that. We have to be detailed. We all have to have a better plan.
"This s*** is not OK. Straight up. It's not OK. How many total yards did we have? Yeah, that s*** is not going to fly.
"Let's call it like it is: We have to be better in the passing game if we want to be where we want to be at. And we know we can be there, that's the most frustrating part.
"We don't have to be in games like this. They didn't even score on offense, and we lost the game.
"Me, personally, I think we have to take it for what it is. We got our ass beat on offense, and the results showed."
